PowerPoint Add-in to delete selected content: TagErase


Teachers and others who distribute their presentations to others often need to maintain two versions of each presentation

That can lead to a lot of boring, error-prone and ... now! ... totally unnecessary work.


Our free TagErase add-in allows you to maintain one presentation that has certain content marked as "Not for distribution". When you're ready to distribute your presentation, TagErase deletes all the "secret" content.

TagErase has three options:

You should always save a copy of your presentation under a new name before deleting the tagged shapes. When you choose this option, TagErase reminds you to save your presentation and gives you a chance to change your mind.

Once you click "OK" TagErase deletes the tagged shapes and they're gone. Permanently.

How to install TagErase

That's it. You're ready to start using TagErase.

To mark content for later deletion, select a shape or shapes and click the Tag button on the TagErase toolbar or choose TagErase, Tag from the main menu bar.

If you change your mind, select the shape or shapes again and click the UnTag button or choose TagErase, UnTag from the main menu bar.

When you're ready to distribute your presentation, SAVE IT UNDER A NEW NAME then click the Delete Tagged Shapes button or choose TagErase, Delete Tagged Shapes from the main menu bar.

If you later need to change your presentation, simply start with the original, make any edits you want, tag or untag the new content as needed, then create a new presentation for distribution just as before.
